Course Overview

Microservices are becoming a software and organization pattern for delivering business value quickly. Spring Boot and Spring Cloud are a powerful combination for building modern architecture that leverage industry test technologies like distributed configuration, services discovery and circuit breakers.

The 2-day Spring Cloud Services course provides participants with a background on why Cloud Native and microservices are important to adding business value quickly. The course leverages Spring Boot and Spring Cloud to solve the challenges associated with running a distributed, microservice based architecture. Participants will also explore the value that a Platform-as-a- Service, such as Pivotal Cloud Foundry, adds in the microservices-based world.
